." your response bowled us over. one blogger at the widely read web site "talking points memo" summed up what many had to say. "i beg everyone who reads this and clicks onto the link to send it on to everyone you know. send it to your congressmen, your governors, your legislatures, the white house. get an e-mail chain going. put the link up on yard signs or billboards. put it on bumper stickers. stencil it on t-shirts or tattoo it onto your forehead. whatever it takes. this is a television event; too important to die. keep it going." well, it's alive and well, and thanks to this station you're about to see it again. the message is even more timely. you heard wendell potter tell us how the industry would try to shape the health care debate as it played out in washington over the summer. sure enough, that's exactly what has happened. by pouring millions of dollars into lobbying, including hiring more than 350 former members of congress and government staffers, and by enriching incumbents with campaign contributions, the health care industry is winning again. here, a congressional subcommit

issues that brought us this debate in the first place. >> moyers: and, david frum from the bush white house asks his fellow conservatives what they will do if they actually succeed in killing off health care reform. >> if the republicans win, this is not going to be a great victory for individual liberty, it's going to be a victory for the status quo. >> moyers: stay tuned. >> from our studios in new york, bill moyers. >> moyers: welcome to the journal. i'm okay with protest. sometimes i wish i'd done more of it myself when i was young. but it's hard to reason with someone who's packing a gun. that's why i found so menacing that photograph of the fellow standing outside president obama's town hall meeting on health care in new hampshire this week with a 9mm pistol strapped to his thigh and a sign quoting thomas jefferson on watering the tree of liberty with the blood of tyrants and patriots. knowing from his myspace profile that he admires white supremacists, it made me queasy to see that man standing there, pistol at his side. of course, he's exercising his second amendment rights un

the richest country, you know, and a lot of our people don't have doctors so they use the emergency department in order to see a physician. >> say, "ah." you've got a lot of congestion in the back of your throat. do you feel like its kind of sitting there? >> well, that second to last tooth is infected and the very back tooth looks broken off. >> all right. >> over the last 12 years a number of people visiting america's emergency rooms has soared. yet here's what's surprising: the number of low-income people going to e.r.s has not increased. the increase has come almost entirely among middle-class people and many of them have insurance. >> whose insurance do you have? >> blue cross. >> do you have your card with you? >> yeah. >> so why do they go to the e.r.? why aren't they seeing their own doctor? many people think that they know what's wrong with the health care system in this country. millions of people are uninsured. and sure, that's part of the problem. but that's not the whole problem. the whole problem is bigger than that. >> i am on top here. any problem up there? any problem in the b
